What a fun crazy dark fairytale story, Marra a princess starts a journey to save her sister who was married off to violent prince to help save their kingdom,she gets a rag tag group starting with the dust wife and the adventures begin!
I probably won‘t start another book until Sunday, so was happy with my final goal of two books read for

I wanted to like this more than I did. This story was told in two time periods 1950 and 2022 all set at the outer banks of N.C. At a seaside resort, I did enjoy the atmosphere but the story was too long drawn out and I really didn‘t like most of the characters finally 3/4 in the story starts pulling together and revealing some of the mystery. Book 1 of #superseptemper

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 2w

This was a quick little mystery set in England, revolving around a haphazard group of woman that formed a book club, none of the characters were very like able so it could have been any of them I guess that‘s what gave the story some interest

1. Yes I read when ever I can, but damn if work doesn‘t get in the way😂but that‘s why I like digital reading if I have down time I have a book on my phone
2. Fantasy just takes me completely out of reality, I love all genres but when I really want to escape (which is a lot lately) that‘s my comfort❤️

Where the Story Starts | Imogen Clark

The story if written differently had potential it was over the top in descriptions and I felt like just page filling I skimmed.
The woman were either portrayed as naive or one dimensional, the ending was unrealistic, it was all just sappy and if it wasn‘t a book club pick I wouldn‘t have finished 🤷🏼‍♀️

1. I don‘t think it matters if your thumb is green,I think it matters whether or not you enjoy it and what it gives to you,I started this about 30 yrs ago when it was just dirt I have had many failures in some plants dying but other successes with so many taking root and thriving.
2 Fresh Water for Flowers in this story used gardening to inspire friendship&healing ❤️‍🩹
3. My library sale I picked up Gardening Hints and Tips

I was drawn to the character Diana and how I felt in her experiences and how that balanced out for me the very sad and gut punching reality of the virus that her boyfriend was dealing with I loved the art aspect and the nature & resilience it sucked me in and wow unexpected turn I feel this book not only put things in perspective but was well rounded at times uncomfortable to relive but to me the overall feeling was uplifting

This was just so-so for me I liked that the author gives you a glimpse into Shanghai China in the 1920 and the Romeo and Juliet retelling it creatively revolves around two rival gangs , I didn‘t mind the scifi element, I think it lays out a good story but because it was the first book in a two book series it just dragged for me I think I will read the second book and hopefully enjoy it more
